Reminds me of British hotels from the 50s when families returned year after year for their summer holidays. Cleaning of bathroom could be greatly improved. Food quite good and service friendly and fast. Liked the pool area. Location next to beach was wonderful and the surf had a very relaxing effect. One important safety measure would be a notice on...

What an unbelievably fantastic holiday we had here over December. All thanks to Philip, Ryan and all the staff. For a family with young kids words cannot describe the excellent level of service, the three stars does not do it justice, we will be returning.

Great location, excellent beach and beautiful views of the Indian Ocean. Pumula Beach Hotel rooms are well appointed and offer everything you need as a traveller for business or holiday. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful and the food very good, especially the seafood dishes. Wifi in the public areas a plus!

For a 3star rated hotel, this places offers so much more. Excellent service, spacious rooms, great food and awesome entertainment for kids. With only minor cleaning related issue to complain about, this hotel certainly is worth a visit. Will definitely go back.

This hotel is amazing if you have a family with little kids. I have been to this hotel several times over the past 10 years and have found that the food is consistently good. My husband and i have even gone there without the kids and found it equally as good. They have child minders that watch over the kids... More

We were warmly welcomed by the manager and shown to our room which was clean and well equipped. The three day stay was all inclusive and the choice at mealtimes was excellent. The swimming pool was crystal clear and the beautiful deserted beach a few steps away. We can thoroughly recommend Pumula Beach Hotel for families and couples. Wifi is... More

We stayed here as a family, 3 generations. Staff were superb, very helpful. Both my wife and mother in law are coeliac, and the staff and chefs were very helpful in making sure there was always something for them - usually a choice. All food was included, and hot drinks, but all other drinks were billed to the room. The... More

Enjoyed our third family holiday in a spacious, neat, clean family inter-leading room. Friendly happy staff. Safe place for children to make friends, run around, play on the beach, in the pool, in the playground or be entertained by the very capable and enthusiastic entertainers and caregivers. A place where you can truly relax and not worry about anything! My... More

Fantastic friendly family hotel on the beach. Great management and staff, delicious food accompanied by a very good wine list. Very relaxed and welcoming for couples as much as for families ! Long stretch of sandy beach with rock pools at low tide.
